  3. What alloy material is a carburetor throttle shaft made from is it BRASS ,BRONZE OR ALUMINUM BRONZE or another form of alloy ? Where can one purchase a finished to size material to make a throttle rod from?
  4. Looking for a suitable length Stromberg UUR 2 throttle shaft that will accommodate the hand throttle control lever at the opposite side of the accelerator mechanism. The UUR 2 throttle shafts offered for sale are to short for what I need Thanks Len

    Stutz Overdrive?

    Hello Stutz16 Can you post some photo,s of your assembly of the four speed conversion to your Stutz Thanks Len
  7. Hi As a suggestion you can use a ball nose end mill to radius (5/16 dia?or to suit) the weld fillets Most can be done by mounting the item to a rotary table The fillet around the pipe section can be milled by using a dividing head Make sure you have the milling head on an angle to the work to see the end mill in contact with the fillet( not vertical to the work). Most ball end mill cutters are two fluted With Al the more flutes the better If you can only get two flutes take light cuts Regards Len

    What is the dwell angle and rev setting speed for a twin ignition 1929 Stutz What is the correct tdc mark on the fly wheel Brian
  9. have a look on e-bay as there are Auburn made thrust bearings for sale 3 inch OD by 2 inch bore Regards
  10. What you have is a Borg and Berg 11Q These were used on a number of vehicles eg 1928 Stutz The bearing is a carbon one maybe a later had a roller Thrust Bearing eg 1929 Stutz There are clutch holders that with a bit of modification can be used The hinge pins if worn can be repaired(turned down) then pressing on the inner race of a needle bearing RegardsLen
  11. Have a look on web site prewar cars under Oldsmobile parts Some early motors for sale suggest you contact person as he may have other motors Good Luck Len
  12. Good you found an oil you like. Suggest you drop the diff out and have a look at the condition of the Worm Wheel you maybe in for a surprised as to what you find. Hope it does not have deep scuffed out marks across the matting face of the of the worm. GOOD LUCK Len
  13. As a Stutz owner do not use any oil that contains Sulphur as it will eat the bronze wheel Oil used originally was camphor I use Penrite Transoil 140 that is designed for use in non ferrous bronze worm wheels In the past have stripped a number of Timken worm diffs to find wrong oil used with bronze wheel eaten away
  14. HI I note the good machining you have carried out well done. I trust you have used an Aluminum Bronze in all of your yellow metal work, using brass or bronze will not end up with the end result you were looking when placed in use Regards
  15. Sometime ago a Mr HWELLENS posted details on leaf spring settings If available could he post settings for 1920 to 1925 for Stutz cars of that period Thanks
